Bob Kelleher on Jobs

Republican challenger


Women earn 67 cents for every dollar men earn

Unemployment on some of Montana's Native American reservations is above 70 percent, Kelleher said. Additionally, a disproportionate percentage of Montana's children are in or near poverty. Montana women earn 67 cents for every dollar a Montana man makes for the same work, a problem Kelleher has identified as one of his top priorities.

Require US corporations to pay same salaries overseas

JOB DRAIN: (a) stop overseas job drain and (b) more closely monitor H1B visas where unemployed Americans have those skills; thousands of high tech jobs and high-paying union jobs went overseas because Baucus/Clinton did not have the foresight in creating NAFTA to require American corporations to pay the same salaries Americans had been receiving for those jobs.

SOLUTION: Kelleher will require U.S. corporations to pay same salaries overseas as they did "state-side"
